Today, President Obama’s weekly address was all about Tuesday’s upcoming elections, and how we need to “put partisanship aside.” It’s undeniable now that Americans nationwide feel the choking effects of his dismal hope and negative change.
Tuesday’s elections have a good chance of bringing a conservative majority to both the House and Senate, and his words reflect that he’s bracing for a very partisan wave ahead.
Here, some of his remarks and my responses… to him, as if I were there.
“Tuesday is election day, and here in Washington, the talk is all about who will win and who will lose, around parties and politics. But around kitchen tables I’m pretty sure you’re talking about other things. About your family finances. Or maybe the state of the economy in your hometown. And about your kids, and what their futures will bring.”
Kid yourself no more, Mr. President. Around my kitchen table, the talk is all about parties and politics. Because your party and your politics have literally crippled family finances all across the nation. And the state of economy in my hometown is suffering from your choking policies. And yes, it’s all about our kids…. the futures your legislation are paving for them offer dismal opportunites for prosperity and freedom.
“And your hope is that once this election is over, the folks you choose to represent you will put the politics aside for awhile, and work together to solve problems. That’s my hope, too.”
I’ll bet it’s your hope. If the train that’s coming your way truly represents freedom, there will be no working together to solve the problems you’ve created. It will be about taking a stand for individual freedoms, free markets, and preserving the Constitution. And that means standing and working against you, Mr.President.
“We need to come together to help put people … back to work. And there are some practical steps we can take right away to promote growth and encourage businesses to hire and expand.”
You, a man who has never run a business only knows “practical steps” to socialize and promote my business right under your choking regulation, oversight and control. Practical steps to promote businesses are simple: take government’s hand out of what should be a free and private market.
“I believe it’s the fundamental responsibility of all who hold elective office to seek out common ground.”
Really, Mr. President??? How about that oath you took? The one that says you will “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States?” How about the Congressional oath that says members will “support and defend the Constitution of the United States?”
“I found the recent comments by … Republicans in Congress so troubling. The Republican leader of the House actually said that ‘this is not the time for compromise.'”
Glad it’s troubling. If every Republican in Congress will choose no compromise, bare sharp teeth, and flex real muscle, national freedom will survive and the Constitution will stand. In spite of you.
“We can live up to an allegiance far stronger than our membership in any political party. And that’s the allegiance we hold to our country.”
Yep, you got that right. That’s the very allegiance fueling this train. And that’s exactly why you feel its rumble and hear its charge.
Here we come.
